Vespa refurbishes its venerable Sprint scooter family ahead of the 2018 model year in an effort to get even more mileage out of the name and adds an “S” model with some upgraded electronics. And why not? The Sprint has been around for half-a-century and more, and the factory made sure that the looks, however updated, pay proper homage to the original. Power comes from the “i-get” engines that produce 2.4 kW and 40 mph at the 50 cc break with 9.5 kW and 59 mph from the 150 cc mill. ABS makes a showing as well for a taste of the electronic wizardry and extra safety to meet the public’s growing expectation of same. As with all their products, the Powers That Be down at Piaggio/Vespa takes the little Vespino very seriously, so let’s dive in and see what else our Italian friends have in store for us.

The Return of the "Vespino"

Harkening back to the time when sporty scooters were ridden by the young and beautiful, the Sprint and its "Sport Collection" sibling, the Sprint S, are a marriage of old world design and technology. I’m not going to say "vintage," but it’s more like the first really sexy update of the vintage designs we saw in the 1960s and maybe into the 1970s.
